Wikiproject videogames assessment[edit]

This post follows a request for assessment left at the videogame project. I've kept the rating as-is, the article has some strong material but is still lacking in some key areas. In order to promote it to B-class I would personally ask for the gameplay section to be expanded to cover the topic (this section would ideally come directly after the lead), as well as the reception section. The lack of cites within the character and plot sections is something to be dealt with. The other thing I noticed is that the development section deals with things like the contents of console bundles, which is a good thing in itself, but it lacking in actual development information. If progress is made in these areas please resubmit the article if you'd like further feedback, thanks to all editors for what they've done with the article.

Zack Wonder's[edit]

in the end of the plot, it says that zack wonders if he became a hero. but isnt that pointless? i mean there's notihng hinting that at all.He probably he felt like he was one and asked cloud to tell aerith he did.Haseo445 (talk) 15:33, 10 February 2009 (UTC)


Is reproducing the entire text of Loveless really necessary? I don't think that this belongs in Wikipedia. Also, it's copyrighted, so it's a bad candidate for Wikisource. -- smurdah[citation needed] 22:44, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Removed. It looks like it was basically a copy-and-paste from the FF wiki as well. And, you're correct, it shouldn't be on this page. Loveless is a poem important to Genesis, but it doesn't need to be writtten out of a Wikipedia page. WhiteArcticWolf (talk) 01:07, 14 February 2009 (UTC)


where ever i go, i keep hearing it being called "final fantasy 7 crisis core". even in other websites and i hardly ever hear it being it called "crisis core: final fantasy 7." So does anyone know where i can find the link to where it says its called "crisis core: final fantasy 7"?Haseo445 (talk) 16:55, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

It's the official name used on the game case, and on the official SE store [1]. WhiteArcticWolf (talk) 16:59, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

how is it on the gamecase? just because the title is on top of it??. anyway....if its on the official website then fine. i just find it strange to be named like that since final fantasy 7 should be the main title. this is confusing since gamestop spelled it wrong aswell.Haseo445 (talk) 15:38, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

The name on top implies that it comes first. In Advent Children, the name is below FFVII, and as such is called Final Fantasy VII Advent Children. I guess I don't find it strange; Advent Children is the odd one out. All other Compilation titles have FFVII preceding the name. As for Gamestop, sometimes companies/websites make mistakes. Someone will eventually point it out, though, and it's not official, so it doesn't harm this article. WhiteArcticWolf (talk) 00:07, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

well when i read in japanese form it reads the way sounds correct. with final fantasy first, but its nothing much anymoreHaseo445 (talk) 17:21, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

The last cetra[edit]

if you complete all the missions possible in midgar before heading to nibelheim, there is a scientist who admits all his research on the sake of a myth, and killed all of the cetra's in order to get what he wanted. the last cetra's name was revealed. you think we should mention it?Haseo445 (talk) 15:57, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Fan conjecture?[edit]

From the plot section:

"Some of Zack's blood gets on Cloud's face, and Cloud slowly begins to show Zack's traits and memories from that point in time forward, due to the DNA cloning experiments done on Zack earlier by Shinra."

I haven't found any sources for this, it's uncited, and not implied in the game. Does anyone have a source? If not, it should be edited out. (talk) 06:22, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

It doesn't make any sense; Cloud begins to take on Zack's persona because of the mental state he was in at the time, not because of any contamination from Zack's blood (not to mention, Cloud had various experiments performed on him as well). I'll remove it. WhiteArcticWolf (talk) 15:02, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Inconsistencies In Plot Line[edit]

Should there be a section on the inconsistencies in the plot line?

I have only recently started playing CC, but I have noticed something allready. In FF7, in the subquest in Wutai, one of the bosses in the tower Yuffie has to be battle (I think it was actually Yuffie's dad) states something like "We won the war but lost most of our people". Yet in Crisis Core it seems as if Wutai have very much lost the war.

If someone could clear that up that'd be great :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:15, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

I thought it was always known that Wutai lost the war, even if FFVII. It could have possibly been a mistranslation or something, which FFVII was very prone to. But, no, inconsistencies are bound to happen throughout the Compilation. They are considered to be the "updated" and "true" versions of FFVII, and are mentioned in the Ultimanias and the like. Thus, most believe that if/when there is a remake of FFVII, these changes will be carried over. Other than that, the section isn't needed because of how in-universe it is, unless there is a high positive or negative reaction with critics or fans. If there isn't, but the creators talk about it, it goes in the production section. Almost every title in the Comp. has some inconsistency witht he original, anyway. It's very evident in Last Order, which shares some characteristics with Before Crisis, but is pretty much considered "Nibelheim from Tseng's POV". WhiteArcticWolf (talk) 11:38, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

I have decided to review this article for GA status. On a first glance, I really quite like the article. -- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 08:27, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

GA review – see WP:WIAGA for criteria

This looks great.

  1. Is it reasonably well written?
    A. Prose quality:
    The part that states the device had two million sales needs a reference.
    B. MoS compliance for lead, layout, words to watch, fiction, and lists:
  2. Is it factually accurate and verifiable?
    A. Has an appropriate reference section:
    A lot of references, but that one I have already mentioned will need a reference if this is to pass. Also, there are 6 dead links, but as they are not Bare URLs, they are still considered "verifiable".
    B. Citation to reliable sources where necessary:
    C. No original research:
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    A. Major aspects:
    B. Focused:
  4. Is it neutral?
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. Is it stable?
    No edit wars, etc:
  6. Does it contain images to illustrate the topic?
    A. Images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content:
    B. Images are provided if possible and are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions:
  7. Overall:
    Pass or Fail:
    A great article overall, just the one problem I have already stated and this article shall be passed :) -- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 08:48, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the review! I will get on that last bit of correction very soon. Judgesurreal777 (talk) 21:44, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Never mind, it was fixed here. -- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 00:41, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
